Detect eMMC during install, create matching config

I bought device to serve as mini server at my home.

It's has 32GByte eMMC inside which I use for the root partition.

I had troubles with ubuntu running on eMMC until I followed the
advice here[1]:

  - disable swap.
  - Put /tmp into ramfs
  - use noatime
  - Store /var/log not on eMMC

The first three points could be done during installing ubuntu.

I am naive user and it took me some time to discover the solution.

I guess it is very difficult to detect during install that the underlaying hard disk
is an eMMC and use appropriate config.

What do you think?

If you are curious it is this device:
